Meet the first Microsoft-branded Lumia 535 (pictures)

The first Microsoft phone takes over from where Nokia left off with the budget-friendly Lumia 535.

Microsoft's first own-brand smartphone, the Lumia 535, isn't a flagship phone -- instead it's a budget dual-SIM device meant for emerging markets.

The Lumia 535 sports a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of onboard storage. Its mediocre lineup of specs is underlined (perhaps undermined would be a better word) by its 5-inch, 960x540-pixel screen.

The phone scrubs the Nokia branding and sports Microsoft's logo. It has a 5-megapixel rear camera.

The Lumia 535 has dual SIM slots and a microSD card slot that gives you up to 128GB of extra storage.

Microsoft also has accessories such as this flip cover, which has a handy slot for credit cards.
